Lonoy Cold Spring in Bohol is a pretty rad spot to spend an hour or two swimming in the man-made pools which are fed by a nearby freshwater stream.

Lonoy Cold Spring isn’t the most picturesque Bohol tourist spot but still a worthy place to check out while you’re in the area.

I visited Lonoy Cold Spring on the way to Kinahugan Falls, so you can combine these two locations on the same route.

Have you got travel insurance for the Philippines? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents happen all the time and having travel insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. You can read more about why you need travel insurance.

I have been using World Nomads Travel Insurance on every trip and in my opinion, they are the best travel insurance provider on the market. I always choose the Explorer Plan as it covers just about everything.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT LONOY COLD SPRING BOHOL

When you arrive at Lonoy Cold Spring you’ll find a small parking lot and ticket stand out the front before entering through the gates to the springs.

Lonoy Cold Spring is made up of three separate springs which are fed from runoff of water from the nearby mountains. The flow of water cascades down the hillside into each mad-made pool and meets the freshwater stream at the bottom.

It’s a popular location for the locals to hang out on weekends and you won’t find too many tourists here. They are always very friendly and welcoming to foreigners so take the time to get to know them and learn more about the local way of life here on Bohol.

Snacks and drinks are also available for purchase from the little shop next to the springs.

The water in the Lonoy Cold Spring is no more than six feet deep and it’s a great spot to cool off while listening to the sounds of the surrounding forested area.
